Nursery Production Microloan Grant Program
We have launched a microfinance partnership with local farmers. Each participant receives funding to construct a 100 sq. ft. (10 ft. x 10 ft.) nursery for the production and sale of primarily fruit tree and edible plants to improve local food security.
We have new collaborating backyard nurseries established on St. Croix and St. John. We are planning to build one on St. Thomas in 2021.
Nursery managers market plants through an online sales portal and at local farmers markets.
